Dolphins cancel Thursday joint practice with Eagles due to non-COVID illness – The Denver Post


The Miami Dolphins canceled their second joint practice with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday morning.

The team will instead be meeting virtually “out of an abundance of caution as a result of a non-COVID illness,” as stated in a Dolphins release. A team source said it’s a stomach bug spreading among players.

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel will still hold a press conference Thursday morning as he was scheduled to do.

The Eagles will still practice on Thursday in Miami. The two teams have a preseason finale scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday night.

The Dolphins and Eagles held one joint practice on Wednesday in front of fans. Miami misses out on a key practice for players fighting for a roster spot as Thursday’s session was the final one of training camp for the team. NFL rosters must be cut down from 80 to 53 players on Tuesday by 4 p.m.

This is a breaking news story that will be updated.
